Editors Sarah and Sophie took Binders Full of Women to the SouthBank Centre on Saturday 22nd June as part of Yoko Ono’s Meltdown. Yes, we did meet her; yes, our knees are still shaking; yes, she is super-inspiring; yes, we did talk about vaginas and Jesus as a girl onstage at the Purcell Room.
But oh no, Ono is not just organising Meltdown this summer. She also has an installation at the Venice Bienniale, and is still calling for inclusions here. You can also be part of her art.
